Study Says Kidney Bean Leaves Work Against Bed Bugs, My Cleaning Products Compares Its With a Non-Pesticide Bed Bug Spray

New York, NY (PRWEB) April 17, 2013

There was a new addition to the list of possible remedies against bed bugs. Based on a report from dailypilot.com posted on April 15, 2013, a study claimed that kidney bean leaves could thwart the blood-thirsty pests. My Cleaning Products shared details about it and compared its effectiveness with the use of a non-invasive bed bug spray.

The leaves work against bed bugs by trapping them via their trichomes, My Cleaning Products relayed as it was said in the report. It explained that the trichomes are the hairs in the kidney bean leaves that works as hooks.

According to the report, the trichomes are about 10 micrometers in diameter and about 50-100 micrometers high, MCP detailed. And as the authors of the study, headed by Micheal Potter, an entomologist from the University of Kentucky, said, those hairs particularly puncture bed bugs and hold them in place, it added.

However, as based on the same report, the company stated that attempts to replicate the leaves to make them more efficient against the pests were unsuccessful.

Here's a part of the post “Could Kidney Bean Leaves Really Counter Bed Bugs?” by My Cleaning Products.

“Bed bugs are no longer just characters in a rhyme. For the past few years, they have become a real-life nuisance. And there are thousands of reported bed bug infest
